  • 1.5 cups mushrooms, chopped (white button, baby portobello, or shitake-I prefer a mix!)
  • 2 cloves garlic

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

  • Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the broth and simmer for 1 minute.
  • Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the milk.
  • Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. 
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. 
  • Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 of the onions and all of the green beans.
